SkyView Academy is hosting an open house to fill teaching vacancies for the next school year, when its inaugural senior class is set to receive their diplomas.
The event is scheduled for Feb. 22 from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. at the school, located at 6161 Business Center Drive in Highlands Ranch.
The public charter school hosted an open house last year, and school board president Lorrie Grove said that success led to the decision to repeat the event this year.
“It worked out really well to be able bring people to us,” Grove said. “We had a lot of people come last year. About 100 people last year came to talk to us and drop resumes off.”
SkyView Academy teaches preschool through 12 grade and Grove said the charter school is hiring 16 new teachers for the 2014-2015 school year.
Available subjects include:
• Chemistry (high school)
• Rhetoric (high school)
• Mathematics (high school and middle school)
• History (high school and middle school)
• Literature (high school and middle school)
• Art (middle school)
• Science (middle school)
• Spanish (middle school)
• Theater (middle school)
• Classroom teachers and assistants (elementary and primary school)
“We have a truly amazing team of teachers and staff who encourage our students to do their best and be their best every day,” said Lisa Nolan, SkyView Academy interim executive director.
When SkyView Academy was founded in 2010, 518 students were enrolled from preschool to fifth grade. This year, the school houses 1,116 students from preschool to 11 grade. The school will graduate its first class in 2015. The school had 31 teachers on staff in 2010, compared to 76 this school year.
“It’s been really exciting to see the growth as it rolls out,” Grove said.
